In 1998, C. Goff III released his first cassette album of all original music notated through a midi compositional tool. The Midisoft Music Mentor program gave Goff the ability to create digital orchestrations of music that he had written in years previous as well as the opportunity to notate new compositions through computer technology. The results were unlike any music that Goff had created in the past, and the experience of producing this album served as a springboard for many projects released by Goff and Taped Rugs Productions in the years following its release.
Because Goff was not yet in possession of CDR technology in 1998, the compositions on "Default" were recorded directly from his computer to cassette tape. No sound effects were added to the cassette recordings. The mp3 files in this archive were all created from the cassette master.
The actual midi files which Goff composed to create the music of "Default" are also included in this archive. Because the sounds of midi files vary depending on the type of computer sound card used during playback, these files likely will have different sonic qualities from the mp3s archived here.
A PDF file of Goff's notated computer manuscript for "Blush" (Track 8) is included in this archive.
1 The pieces: "Freeway," "Whirling," and "Rosie Notes" are all variations of compositions that Goff had notated via manuscript during the 1980's for performance through a Frippertronics-style tape loop system. Working with Killr "Mark" Kaswan in the project: "Disism," several versions of "Freeway" were recorded and released on cassette by Taped Rugs during the 1980's. The first public release of a version of "Whirling" appeared in the piece: "Idiosynchronicity," from Goff's 1992 solo cassette: "People Make The World Go Round." The midi version of "Whirling" archived here was incorporated into the piece: "Little Maniacs," released by Taped Rugs and by Leigh Julian's "Smell The Stench" Australian recording label on the CDR: "Bacterial Culture" in 2004. Working with Steve Schaer and Vernon Lawton in the project: "-ING" (as well as solo), several versions of "Rosie Notes" have been recorded and performed over a period of thirty-plus years.
2 The pieces: "Eyeball," "Splash," "Tenfour," "Blush," "Content," and "Threes" were all incorporated into compositions released by Taped Rugs on Goff's solo album "Whirledly" from 2002. The full "Whirledly" album is archived here:
